Spraining My Ankle Was The Best Thing Ever

Spraining My Ankle Was The Best Thing Ever

During O-Week — or orientation week — before my first fall term on campus, I managed the impossible. I sprained my ankle walking down a small incline on the way to the Choates, one of the freshman dorms on campus. I was on my way […]

Q: Where’s the best place to eat on campus? Any standout snacks?

Q: Where’s the best place to eat on campus? Any standout snacks?

A: My favourite place to eat on campus is at the ’53 Commons or Foco. I like to eat here because they have a good selection of gluten-free options (I have celiac) and it’s so fun to eat with all your friends. My favourite snacks […]

The Mysterious Machines of Physics 15

The Mysterious Machines of Physics 15

With all of the incredible, varied activities that I take part in on campus, it can sometimes be easy to forget that the real reason I’m here is to study. But with that said, classes at Dartmouth are nothing like they are at high school; […]

How to Deal With Getting Sick at College

How to Deal With Getting Sick at College

It’s week nine, finals are looming, papers are due, and I have fallen victim to the latest round of illness to circle campus. That’s right, I’m sick and it sucks. Because Dartmouth operates on a 10-week term system rather than a semester system, courses are […]

My Definition of Home is Changing

My Definition of Home is Changing

This past weekend I went to Boston, Massachusetts to visit some friends. I was excited to leave Hanover or as I like to call it, the middle of the woods. I — along with many others — jokingly refer to Dartmouth’s location as incredibly remote, […]

Autumn’s autumn at Dartmouth

Autumn’s autumn at Dartmouth

It was around this time last year that I saw the fall’s photo of a current student on the Admission’s blog that urged me to apply for Dartmouth Early Decision, so I figured that I should write a similar autumn-inspired post to encourage prospies to […]

Meet My Floor

Meet My Floor

When I got my housing assignment for this year, I was super pumped. I was excited that I got my own room and that I was living in a dorm, Topliff, that was close to the gym. I was even more pumped when I found […]

So You Want to Be a Business Major…

So You Want to Be a Business Major…

When I came to Dartmouth, I wasn’t exactly sure what I wanted to do after college, but I knew it would probably have something to do with business. From my first entrepreneurial experience with lemonade stands growing up to the small business I had during […]
